A few TRH related items that might have passed you by the last few days. There are two... count them, two brand new All The Kings Men Podcasts for your listening pleasure! First, Jesse Cohen and John Hoven from Mayor's Manor chat with me about the Kevin Westgarth trade and the boring world of waivers.  Then, Jesse and I are joined by Jen from Anaheim Calling, Derek from Fear the Fin and Carl from Five for Howling for our Pacific Division 2013 Preview! And as always, you can check out brand-new episodes of All The Kings Men Podcast here or subscribe to it on iTunes. FYI, here is why I love my readers so much... I try to do some actual analysis of the sport of hockey instead of some sarcastic, ******** remark... Kevin Westgarth is a great guy but he wasn't going to be part of the Darryl Sutter-era LA Kings. Played 8 games once Sutter took over. — The Royal Half (@theroyalhalf) January 13, 2013 And I get nothing but flack... @theroyalhalf An informative tweet from you? No snark? Is this part of the new CBA? — Drew Feld (@DrewMFeld) January 13, 2013   @theroyalhalf Whoa?! Real hockey analysis?! The Cups's changed you! — LAKings Outsider (@LAKingsOutsider) January 13, 2013 Screw you guys! I'm going to really infuriate you and write a mini-guest blog to inform the New York Islanders fans about the potential of Thomas Hickey. So suck on that, real hockey analysis!!!
